- Neelley Hicks
look at who we are…who you are. WOMAN.
you may have been hurt & abused, but you survived. stronger than those who sought to hurt you. rising above callousness & cowardice of those who could not would not look upon your wounds who backed the attacker – too afraid to rattle the chains of the cage of submission built for WOMAN.
you stood up did not stay bent you stand out wearing proudly the badge they put on you for shame and turning it into a mark of resilience and resistance.
you know who you are.
beloved, fierce warrior. no turning back. the world can be different. we make it so.
In honor of women everywhere who’ve survived sexual harassment, abuse & trauma, International Women’s Day 2020.
